White wash

We want to whitewash inner walls
Our flesh hardly warranting color.

All we needed was broom in lime.
When we apply there are tiny fish

On walls and there is a whiteness.
Lime arises out of sizzle by stone

When water enters stone innards
Since they were once fish in sea.

Flesh is colorless on white bones
Pure and white like a fish’s fossil.

We are short of calcium of bones.
It gives them pearlwhite plasticity.

Bones may break from monotony
Short of the all whitening calcium.

Whitewashed flesh on no bones
Can hardly walk a cat on the roof.
